Wein, Liebe, Vaterland: Gedichte (German Edition)
Schneider is currently working on her second volume of poetry, which will be a formal mixture of the essay, poetry and translation. Prose poetry is not very common in the German tradition, much less in contemporary German poetry. This inevitably leads to the question of how Lea Schneider, co-founder of the Berlin-based poetry collective G13, came to write this award-winning debut collection. According to Schneider, the answer lies in her study of comparative literature and engagement with poetry from China, or, rather, Taiwan.
The Anglophone tradition of prose poetry had been picked up by several poets with whom Lea Schneider interacted and some of whom she translated.
12 Gedichte, Op.35 (Schumann, Robert)
Thematically, many of the poems in Schneider's first collection are equally informed by her scholarship and a persistent questioning of utopias and realities, often directed by associative leaps or logical progressions. One German reviewer correctly noted that Schneider stages miniature dramas in a subjunctive tense. Born in , hers is a committed, political voice, often emerging in the second or third reading — like a Trojan horse — commenting on issues ranging from rape culture to materialism to the way catastrophes become media events.
Another aspect that makes her poems bear multiple readings is the sly mixture between precise description, stylistic sophistication, and well-placed irritating elements. The initial spark often seems to be a technical term or concept that is then slightly distorted, the ambiguity exploited for mental associations or journeys down the rabbit hole.
These are poems that invite the reader to ponder, laugh, and question what we know about the world and ourselves — though not necessarily in that order. The seamless transitions between the essay and poetry forms come from the Chinese scene. Verlagshaus Berlin, Collaborations das war absicht. Sukultur, O0. Herausgegeben von F.
